    Half/hafu is not necessary derogatory in Japan, it’s doesn’t have the same connotations as half caste or mutt. It just means Japanese + somewhere or you have on Japanese parent. In that context, double doesn’t make any sense. People say double to say that their child has both cultures, but I think the description is more to do with ethnicity, and a feeling that only being doesn’t make someone whole. Maybe it’s better to be hafu than gaijin
